Gabi Reed Verbally Commits to In-state South Carolina Gamecocks

Fitter and Faster Swim Clinics is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all commitment news. For many, swimming in college is a lifelong dream that is pursued with dedication and determination. Fitter and Faster is proud to honor these athletes and those who supported them on their journey.

Gabi Reed, a junior at Wando High School in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, has announced her verbal commitment to the in-state Gamecocks for 2020-21.

“I am so happy & blessed to announce my verbal commitment to further my academic and athletic career at The University of South Carolina. I can’t thank Jesus enough for having his hand over my life and making this possible. I am beyond grateful for this opportunity to continue my love for swimming and also get my degree at this amazing university. It has always been a dream of mine to attend and swim for a Division 1 school and can’t wait to live it out at USC with the great program that Coach Moody and the coaching staff has developed. My little girl self would never believe this could happen and I can’t thank my coaches and parents enough for helping me make my dream a reality. Time to be a Gamecock!”

Reed was runner-up in the 200 free (1:52.74) and took 4th in the 100 fly (57.20) at the 2018 SCHSL 5A Championships last fall. In club swimming, where she represents South Carolina Swim Club, she had an outstanding meet at South Carolina Swimming LSC Long Course Championships in July. There, she finaled in all her events: 50/100/200 free, 100/200 back, and 100 fly and earned PBs in the 100/200 free, 100 back, and 100 fly. She also competed at Cary Futures, swimming in the 100 free, 100 back, and 100 fly.
